Track Name: Drunk With Power
DRUNK WITH POWER

and so we raise the ceiling
how much more are we willing?

and I’m not going to take it anymore
it fell on deaf ears but i tried to tell you before
it’s all around me
it’s hanging in the air
and as i breathe it wires me for death and despair

you won’t see me when i’m coming
you won’t stop me when you see me
planning, scamming it’s my mission
i’m feeling drunk with power
and it’s in me, the impulse to destroy
in this my finest hour

our fabric torn and burning
somehow the world keeps turning

set the last trip line on my way out the door
so desensitized that i don’t hear you at all
they’re coming for me
but i say when this ends
msnbcnn fox 5 nightly news at 10
again and again and again

you won’t see me when i’m coming
you won’t stop me when you see me
planning, scamming it’s my mission
i’m feeling drunk with power
and it’s in me, the impulse to destroy
in this my final hour
Track Name: Sick and Dirty
SICK AND DIRTY

oh fuck no here it comes again
i know you were my confidence
i thought you were my friend
you’re cold and callous time and time again
and i don’t know why i can’t get you the fuck out of my head

and i pressed my guts dry
digging it all out for you
i stayed down and i tried
while you did just what you always do
i never knew you were so weak
it doesn’t usually couple with evil
mother hen got in too deep
and you ran me in circles

driving west on june the first
we looked into each others’ eyes
the sun so bright that the air was yellow
two rainbows were in the sky
symbols overwhelmed us and my heart tripled in size
pulled off the highway just to hold you close
we weren’t supposed to die

what the fuck was it that made you so scared
when i know that you loved me?
how the fuck were we so unprepared?
what made leaving so enticing?
what the fuck about all the times
of tremendous headway?
and all the times that we felt the earth shake?
did you forget them already?

i need to know so i can rest
how would you feel if you were all alone?
but i know you don’t have that ability yet
in betraying me you betrayed yourself
and the values you used to boast
i was so sad watching your character decay

and you placed me all the blame
and you watched me accept it
how the fuck do you not feel ashamed
about the way that you left it?
the punishment did not fit the crime
and you continue to fuck me
so go rot away with your kind
and stay sick and stay dirty
Track Name: Exit West
EXIT WEST

running around like the tramp who came before you
leading me around like a chump on a chain
leaving me down to fend and make sense of

now i need to get out of this place

last thing i knew, you loved and adored me
you used to make sure that i’d stick around
and having it all was there for the taking

i believed you, you lied to my face
can you ever be more?

look at you now, my downfall and anchor
you never believed in a word that i said
you made me defend when you were the one fucking up

trusting you was my biggest mistake
from the time that you said i was safe to give you what you took away
why couldn’t i get the same?
Track Name: Arab Spring
ARAB SPRING

arm yourselves
get them surrounded
storm the palace
take them down

held face down
doing something about it
unprecedented means to organize
for all the generations past to never once taste freedom
endless atrocities
that just can’t be undone

shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up

this isn’t a holiday
we’re here to take away from you
our lives and our futures
regimes of sick motherfuckers are falling
finally you can’t get away
shot dead in broad light of day
if only you could die 500,000 fucking times

who says that it can’t happen?

held face down
doing something about it
there is no time, there is no place for compromise
you’ve held us down, we’ve lived in fear
empowered masses are drawing near
and now you’re being undone

this isn’t a holiday
we’re here to take away from you
our lives and our futures
regimes of sick motherfuckers are falling
finally you can’t get away
shot dead in broad light of day
if only you could die 500,000 fucking times
Track Name: Slow Motion
SLOW MOTION

it’s saturday afternoon
i hope she’s leaving soon
so i can put it all back down
i’ll wake up in time for sunset
remembering i’d rather forget
i’m choking on stale air and it’s killing me

i hate to say
it’s hard to look away
frozen in unoccupied space

i only love what’s far away
both past and present day
lighting terrain ahead with candle light
dark clouds line the future
because all i couldn’t do
her profound absence is still resonating

i hate to say
it’s hard to look away
frozen in unoccupied space
and i hate to say
it’s hard to look away
i’m frozen
and i’m bored
and i fucking hate this place

work, sleep, work, sleep
get fucked up, repeat
work, sleep, work, sleep
get fucked up, repeat

have i seen my calling here evaporate away?
